Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum, founded in 1966, exhibits ship models, paintings and maritime antiques, principally from the great era of Atlantic trade and travel between England and America during the 18th and 19th centuries. The museum's collection is housed in the elegant home built for William Scarbrough, one of the principal owners of the Steamship Savannah and president of the Savannah Steamship Company. The most recent gallery explores Savannah's naval encounters during the Civil War. The Scarbrough House is surrounded by two acres of lush gardens. Available for weddings and corporate events.
